An identification survey identifies existing buildings and improvements on a block of land, as well and any limitation from the title. It is recommended to have an ident survey done prior to purchasing a property, to protect against any potential disputes. It also gives the purchaser an understanding of any existence of easements, covenants and restrictions on the use of the land, and whether the subject land complies with the conditions. It also shows the distances of the walls, eaves and/or gutters from the boundaries of the property, or if there are any encroachments. A site plan and report are provided on the completion of this work.
